“Magical” Christmas Mantel

Today I have been getting out my Christmas mantel decorations while listening to Trans-Siberian orchestra (turned up quite loudly).  It’s funny how something as simple and innocent as getting out boxes of garland and ornaments can leave ones house upside down!  Did you know that even fake garland leaves needles in every nook and corner of your house.  It’s true.  Ask my vacuum.

Confession… I did my mantel three times.  I liked it, then I had a different idea.  I liked that, then I had a brain storm.  It’s exhausting being around me.  My husband goes to work just to get some rest. 😉

Anywhoo, here is the finished mantel…  whatcha think?

The ornaments are strung together with fishing line.
Each string has 5 ornaments tied on. I used clear push pins to attach the strings to the top of the mantel backsplash. The ornaments look like they are floating in air!
When my daughter came home from school and saw the mantel, she said it looked “magical”.  My job here is done. 🙂
